The purpose of architecture is simply to protect the human being from the elements and to some extent, from danger of attack by animals and possibly, other human beings. Any structures failure to do that depends on several factors. Among them are poor design, delay in construction, abnormal occupation etc. Construction delay has become endemic in Kenyan institutions. It is imperative to study and create awareness of the extent to which delays can adversely affect project delivery and hence development of human disgust. This paper identifies, by questionnaire evaluates and through empirical method assesses the effects of construction delays on human temperament leading to disgust and stress. The findings showed that time overruns, noise, dust and water leakages among others were frequent effects of delay. Acceleration of site activities coupled with improved clients' updates should assuage the adverse effect of construction delays.
